Burt Reynolds accorded 100-car salute

Washington: Fans of late Hollywood star Burt Reynolds paid their last respects by hosting a car rally in New York State’s Long Island area.

According to TMZ, the car rally was organised on Saturday to pay tributes to the star, who made a car, the Pontiac Firebird Trans Am, in his 1977 movie ‘Smokey Bandit’.

The tribute, which was a parade, was rightly called the ‘100-Trans Am Salute’ since fans rode 100 of those in remembrance of the star.

Many of his fans even dressed like Reynolds from his 1977 movie character.

The 82-year-old actor passed away on September 06 in Florida after suffering a cardiac arrest.
